Question about IBM ThinkPad T30 2366 Notebook
Well, my t30 crashed and when I ran the recovery console it worked for a minute. I ran zone alarm and then it crashed again., This time when i booted up I got the messege that xp could not find my hard drive. Of course theres no floppy only dvd drive so what do I need to do now??
Couldn't find the hard drive or the DVD drive? If it's the hard drive then the crash was due to a hard drive failure and the hard drive will have to be replaced. If it's the DVD drive, you will need to get a floppy for it and flash the bios in order for the machine to recognize the DVD drive again.

Sounds like a failing hard drive or corrupt file system.
Or possibly you have a non bootable disk in the floppy drive, assuming it has one as most laptops dont.
Is this Windows XP? If so, try booting from the XP cd. At the menu, choose R for recovery console.
In the recovery console, type in CHKDSK /R and let it run, it may take well over and hour to run, if it runs at all. If the recovery console is unable to load, or chkdsk wont run, you may have a failing hard drive.
